Sometimes fit is hard to determine from editorial photos, so we've taken clear and simple photos of our model, Hayleigh wearing Sivu. Hayleigh is a 96.5cm / 38" bust and is wearing a size 3 (finished bust circumference 99cm / 39").

Please note that the modelled sleeves are longer than the pattern calls for. You can adjust the sleeve length yourself as indicated at the end of the Sleeves section ("Rep prev 6 rows until sleeve is 4.5cm / 1.75" less than desired length").

The Sivu sweater is a close-fitting sweater.Model with arms raised; the sleeves of Sivu are close fitting.The shape of the model's waist is clearly visible while wearing Sivu.When viewed from the back and with arms raised, there is some excess material at the shoulder.
